Cumbria

Take a look at our new Inspire and Explore section for the ultimate guide to holiday activities in the Lake District.

Cumbria is one of Britain’s most loved and visited holiday locations, providing a unique combination of dramatic mountains and awesome lakes. It’s a place that attracts visitors all year round and appeals to a wide variety of holidaymakers from couples who want to stay in a cosy Lakeland cottage to families who are looking for country homes with a view.

Cumbria has a great blend and variety of contrasting landscapes, including the renowned Lake District National Park which includes all the iconic places synonymous with the Lake District such as Windermere, Keswick and Ambleside as well as famous lakes such as Lake Windermere, Derwentwater and Coniston.

The mountains and fells here are spectacular and include iconic peaks such as Blencathra, Skiddaw, Grisdale Pike and the largest mountain in England Scarfell Pike. The county extends well beyond The National Park offering great cottage holiday destinations like the tranquil Eden Valley in the east and the rugged uplands to the north around Hadrian’s Wall or the Western Lakes and Coast on the west and the Cartmel Peninsula in the south.

Because of its quite compact geography it’s easy to get around the Lake District and despite of its popularity it’s still possible to escape fellow holidaymakers to admire the wide open spaces and spectacular views with the feeling that you’re the only one there, apart from the sheep!

The great outdoors is of course one of the main reasons people visit; this is wonderful walking and cycling country as well as providing lots of opportunities to sample the watersports on the numerous lakes.

Families will find no shortage of top quality visitor attractions, those interested in National Trust properties and gardens will also not be disappointed. The region is packed with picturesque Lakeland villages to discover, specialist shops, cosy pubs and restaurants.

Those thinking about taking a cottage holiday in Cumbria are sure to find something suitable, whether it’s in the ‘hot spots’ of the central and southern lakes or the more remote and rugged areas of the northern lakes, or maybe the less well known regions to the west and east of the county.

So whether you’re looking for lots of activities and attractions or a quiet ‘away from it all’ break this region will suit.

Take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Cumbria to find your perfect retreat.

    This quaint cottage is nestled in the village of Backbarrow which sits on the River Leven, in the beautiful Leven Valley, five miles north east of the busy Cumbrian town of Ulverston. Backbarrow has a lot of history and has quite a tale making it very popular to the avid historians. You can enjoy visiting the village to learn about its important role during the industrial revolution. In the 19th century, Backbarrow was a hub of iron and cotton production, as well as being famous for producing the pigment ultramarine or “dolly blue”. The remnants of this colourful production line can still be found at the old factory, known as “The Bluemills”. Another lasting testament to Backbarrow’s industrial past stands in the form of the old ironworks, which were built in 1711. Visitors can see the old blast furnace stack, which has been lovingly restored as part of the development of a new group of mews style houses on the banks of the river. Backbarrow’s location at the southern end of Lake Windermere, between Lakeside to Haverthwaite Railway and the River Leven, makes it a powerful draw for tourists who can explore the nearby National Trust-owned Fell Foot Park and Beatrix Potter country. Coarse fishing is available at Lake Windermere and River Leven, a licence is required.

    Ground Floor: The property has economy 7 Storage Heaters and comprises:
    Lounge: Spacious with multi-fuel burner, 24" Free view TV, DVD and iPod dock.
